Hello all,

Everyone is no doubt aware of the powerful dependency-engine at the
heart of XForms, but there is little discussion about how it works
'under the hood'. Although understanding the engine is not crucial to
programming XForms, we often find that at a certain point, programmers
invariably find they need to modularise large forms, both for
maintenance and performance reasons. Anyone looking to replace one
large model with lots of smaller ones should find 'Understanding the
XForms dependency-engine' [1] (which is part of our 'Programming with
formsPlayer and XForms' handbook [2]) a useful overview.

Regards,

Mark
